Pilot: The Money Diaries

Pilot: The Money Diaries

My September Rest and Rejuvenate challenge has been hard but rewarding.  It has forced me to think outside of the box and get creative with my writing topics and themes of discussion.  Something I have really wanted to sink my teeth into and start dispelling the taboo around is the somewhat-painful subject of money.
